Ballpoint Pen Stamps Out Pac-Man Ghosts


If you’re looking for something different in a writing instrument, check out this nicely designed modern ballpoint pen. Sure it’s nice and stylish, but the best part about it is that it also has a stamp inside. A stamp featuring a Pac-Man style ghost.

I’m not sure if it is Inky, Blinky, Pinky or Clyde, but I love the idea that I could be writing out anything and then just stamp a little ghost onto the paper. It was spotted at an exhibition on contemporary Japanese design in Milan a few years back and that’s how it came to be shared.


The design is an update on the ancient tradition of hanko (where a personal seal is used for official documents). It was created by Naoto Fukasawa for Shachihata, the world’s leading stamp producer. The pen is said to be “brilliantly lacquered, flawlessly detailed, and perfectly balanced.” You can buy one over at The Ghostly Store for $50 (USD).
